Neil Gaiman's take on Hansel & Gretel is said to be made into a film...

Another piece of Neil Gaiman writing is to be adapted for the big screen, as it's been revealed overnight that the film rights have been picked up for his incoming graphic novel of Hansel & Gretel.

Juliet Blake, who produced The Hundred-Foot Journey, is the one who's picked said rights up, through her Four Chickens For A Fiver company (great name). It follows earlier Gaiman works, Coraline and Stardust, to the movies. Sandman is on its way too, and American Gods is heading to television.

Gaiman's graphic novel (based on the Grimms' fairy tale) is released in October, and it sounds as if he's quite involved in the movie adaptation as well. Look forward to seeing this one - both graphic novel and film...
